This gorgeous anchor by the Graphics Fairy was the inspiration for our new house number. It’s just perfect, our little housie by the sea is in a secure village called “Anchors Aweigh” 😎
We added the number 50 to the image using Power Point and then we took some pallet off cuts, wood glue, saddles, rope and chalk and created a one of a kind sign. We cut the pallets into 4 x 35 cm pieces and 2 x 40 cm pieces, sanded them down and then gave 2 coats of Gripseal wood stain. (I love Gripseal, it’s a wood stain with a built in sealer that goes on really easily and their colour range is to die for). Once the sealer was dry we placed the 35 cm pieces side by side and using wood glue and a nail gun, we attached the 40 cm pieces to the 35 cm pieces.
Attach a piece of rope to the back of the pallet sign using some saddles and screws.
All that still needs to be done is to transfer the image on the front of the pallet sign using an overhead projector and chalk.
I really love how it turned out. The perfect sign for a perfect little holiday home.
